    What is flight messaging?

    Flight Messaging is a service that gives you real-time status of the flights arriving at or departing from an airport in Milan,by sending notifications via email. To use the service you must be registered on the Airport websites.

    For which flights can I activate flight messaging?

    You can request information on flights arriving at or departing from a SEA airport: Milan Linate, Milan Malpensa Terminal 1, Milan Malpensa Terminal 2, Milan Malpensa Cargo. The flight messaging service may be requested not only for the flights of the day, but also for the following days (up to three days after the request). It is not possible to activate flight messaging for flights that have already departed or landed at the time of the request.

    What information will I receive? And when?

    Once the flight messaging service is activated you will receive emails with the information that appears on the monitors in the airports of Linate and Malpensa. For example, check-in open, boarding, flight cancelled, minutes of flight delays...
    The messages will be sent at the same time they are displayed on airport monitors for public information. There is no information regarding other destinations of the flight. Ex. Flight Milan-Paris: you will not be notified of the time of landing in (or approaching) Paris.
    Flight Paris-Milan: you will not be notified of the time of departure from Paris (or boarding or when check-in opens).

SEA is not in any way responsible for the improper use of the information provided through the flight messaging service.
    Being informed of delays or cancellations does not exempt passengers from observing all terms and conditions in the air transport contract as well as those established by individual airlines for their passengers. For example, flight delays do not exempt passengers from having to report at the check-in counter within the time limit set by the airline they are flying with.

    SEA is not liable for failure or delay in receiving information due to problems in the telecommunications network.

    What are the differences between the ViaMilano Program Card and the ViaMilano Program Club Sea Card?

    The ViaMilano Program card is a free card that allows the holder to participate in the ViaMilano Program, earn points, collect rewards and take advantage of the many membership benefits when earning points. The ViaMilano Program card does not expire (its expiry is linked to the end of the Program).
    The ViaMilano Program Club SEA card is a payment card that allows you to add all the benefits of the ViaMilano Program to the exclusive membership benefits of Club SEA.
    ViaMilano Program Club SEA members are entitled to special treatment even within the ViaMilano Program. In fact, they are entitled to superior benefits and advantages and earn points faster.

    From the moment you join the ViaMilano Program, you will be entitled to many benefits offered by SEA and program partners, simply by signing up. Moreover, when you make your first purchase you will receive 200 bonus points and 2 passes for ViaMilano Fast Track.

    How can I earn points?

    Points can be accumulated when you park at the ViaMilano car parks, or when you make purchases at the shops, participating facilities, food courts and car rentals at Milan Linate and Milan Malpensa airports. Only purchases made by the holder of the card will be entitled to the accumulation of points.
    Failure to present the card at the time of payment will not allow the accumulation of points and the related points cannot be earned subsequently. For more details see the list of participating shops of the Program in the section 'Collect points' on the site.

    How are points calculated?

    Members of the ViaMilano Program profile will earn 10 points for every Euro spent at participating shops of the program or at the ViaMilano car parks. Members of the ViaMilano Program Club SEA profile will earn 12 points for every Euro spent. Remember that the minimum spending amount to be eligible to accumulate points is five Euro.

    Purchases of the following items are excluded from the accumulation of points:

    • tobacco and stamps
    • newspapers and magazines

    To be credited the points you must present your card at the time of purchase or payment of parking. If the card is not presented at the time of payment, the points cannot be credited.

    If I use the points to redeem a reward, do I even lose the benefits that I have acquired upon achievement of the points?

    The benefits are linked to a status acquired and depend on the points accumulated in the period and not the points balance. You can therefore enjoy the benefits acquired when reaching the different thresholds until the end of the Program.

    How much time do I have to be able to use my points?

    The points accumulated can be used to redeem reward of up to 30 days after the end of the Program provided for in the Regulation, that is until 30 October 2012. To know the deadline to redeem the benefits, please see the information of each of the Program partners.

    You can withdraw from the program by notifying SEA by registered mail. At the time of withdrawal from the program, if you do not request any rewards at the same time, the accumulated points will be lost.

    If I already have a SeaMi Card, what should I do?

    Seami has changed its name and is now called ViaMilano Program. If you already have your Seami card, you can continue to use it as usual to accumulate points, take advantage of the benefits and request rewards.

    Use the card immediately for your purchases and earn points, but be sure to include the number of the card and change your temporary password to complete your registration in the program and transform the points into rewards.
